The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Argh, help me choose 9 sets for my back! So many good exercises...

    These are all favorites of mine, and I'm just trying to figure the best way to assign nine sets to them:

    Deadlifts
    Free Standing T Bar Rows
    Dumbbell Bent Over Rows
    Chin ups

    Definitely keep the deadlifts and chin ups. You could do the following:

    DL's x 3
    chin ups x 3
    alternate between the other two...one week do bent over rows x3, and the next week do T bar rows x3

    Just what I thought as I read the first post. T bar and bent overs hit the back from a similar angle.

    Why 9 sets?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Great idea!

    *Guinness commercial accent* Brilliant!

    Why 9? Well, you gotta set a top limit of sets somewhere, I try to avoid doing more than 9 sets per muscle group.

    the pull ups are instrumentsl to lat development do 3 sets

    deadlifts are also instrumental for back development do 4 sets

    bent over rows are better for rom than t bars( same exercise anyway) do 3 sets

    Add in close grip cable rows 3 sets

    between this set up you will annhialate your back and see impressive results!

    I do 3 sets of pullups, 5 sets of deadlifts and 3 of barbell rows.

    Occasionally I'll mix it up and go heavy on barbell rows instead of deadlifts, if I feel like my body needs a bit of a break.

    If you want to do 9 sets, why not make it 10 and then do 2 working sets for each lift?
